Prometheus in chains
is not done yet, to resign and surrender,
to the unexplained wonders and myths
untold, let me conquer this titanic strife;
I don't wanna be a devil`s pride.
Am I nourishing an evil spirit, Or deaf
to some celestial hymns? but
I have found these ideals
Hideous and hectic, that
echo in-man's holy shrines.
Time and space has taught me well
how to cope these enchanting spells.
This ever changing life fair.
How could I frame my Will In those
old divine spells? After knowing
the truth and all wise sayings.
Is it fair to lame my inventive brain?
Isn`t it a weary pain to embrace
such fairy tales? Then...
Let your Prometheus unchained.
